Welcome to Cohesive Capital Partners

Cohesive Capital Partners makes direct investments exclusively alongside high quality private equity sponsors that are leading the transactions.  Our high-caliber direct deal-experienced team executes this approach which incorporates strategies for private equity investments in sponsor’s new portfolio companies as well as equity capital needs for existing portfolio companies.  Cohesive’s strategy is a continuation of the direct investment strategy employed across two funds by John Barber while serving as the co-founder and Managing Partner of Citi Private Equity from 2001-2009.


Cohesive has a very open and collaborative culture.  The team believes that private equity is a ‘team sport’ and the Firm name of ‘Cohesive’ was specifically chosen to reflect that mentality.


We are currently investing out of our second fund, Cohesive Capital Partners II, L.P., a 2015 vintage fund with $384 million in committed capital.
